The United States became a Federal Republic upon ratification of the Constitution in 1789, and following passage of the 17th Amendment in 1913 it became a representative democracy as well. All this came to an end on November 22nd 1963, when our elected President was overthrown in a brutal Coup d’État. Since then we’ve come to live under something much different.
Conspiracy in the assassination of John F. Kennedy is not a matter of theory. It is not mere opinion or a guess that a conspiracy materialized from up on high. The evidence is there – both hard and soft – and in the case of the libel suit Liberty Lobby, the CIA’s complicity was proven in a court of law. The general public is unaware of all this, and to what extent they are aware of facts which greatly undermine the official version, they are often in denial. The public can think what it wants but they are lied to everyday by the government. Indeed, it takes a special amount of brainwashing to believe that our government tells us the truth on nearly anything at all. In other countries it is a given that we are corrupt beyond belief. Ask people in the countries we call our allies what they think, and I guarantee you they will tell you that the US government is a lying sack of shit.
The core of the US’s dysfunction stems from JFK’s death. It is the root of the corruption that reeks today. To understand the dynamics of the criminal world in which our government does its business, the JFK assassination must be understood and confronted. For the intelligence community the assassination was a successful operation that led to their founding – “Autonomous Central Intelligence Agency, Est. 1963”. The agency has worked the same way since, as it is predicated on this rich legacy of a tried and true formula implemented at the highest levels.
The best way to begin studying the assassination is to first gain familiarity with Kennedy’s presidency – specifically his foreign policy record. To that end, this link is my recommended starting point.
